WBDNJiSDAY, AUGUST 8< SINGLE COPIKS FIVE CENTS World War Two. Tens of thousands of helplefis civilians were killed In special gas chambers in Polish Lublin. Certainly, people who would stoop to .such bestiality would not hesitate to use poison gas against soldiers or cities it they felt they could eain by it. Allies Prepared On six separate occasions the Allies have warned Hitler that if it's gas lie wants, they can disli It out as well as take it. Certainly, Britain arid America, with their air superiority, and in a position to dreiich the Reich with any sort of diabolic chemical they may choose. The - Allies have not used gas in this" war, but their experimentation with it has never "stopped. -...!..; '.,. • • Hitler ,.woiu<r hardly use gas on --any 6r'-lifcf-bntUefr<J.iftsi: When .the Germans first introduced - poison vapor into World Wai;Qne, it was solely to break" the trench stalemate and force the opposition Into fluid battle of movement. But - whole of World War Two is battle of movement. Friend and foe frequently are hopelessly intermingled on a battlefield. Should the Germans loose gas over any area of the French front, for instance, it probably would kill as many Nazis as Allied soldiers., On top of that, gas has been over-rated as a weapon of war. In the Insj, great conflict, for instance, it accounted for only one and three-tenths per cent of all battle casualties. But as a weapon for use against civilians, it Is a' different matter. -.> Could Hurt London If Hitler resorts to gas it probably will be against London. Even of only one or two planes in a gas- bearing fleet got" through, they could cause much damage. Only yesterday, Germany's official commentator, General Kurt Dittmar .said the only Nazi hope lay in forcing the Allies to tire of the war and so negotiate a compromise peace. Hitler may hope to accomplish that purpose with gas. ,,jff so, his vaunted V-2 would be rn Implement of war the ancients used over 2500 years ago. Gas warfare has Its roots deep in military history. In 429 B. C., the Greek state of Sparta used burning pitch and sulfur to. defeat the Athenian town of Piataea. The use of poison gas doesn't come up again In history until 1855. Then, a French and British army, storming the Russian city of Sevastopol, proposed to use the same pitch and sulfur formula. But the plan, submitted to headquarters in London, was voted down. The story skips to 1915. At 5 o'clock on the afternoon of Apri! 22, the Germans loosed chlorine gas near the Belgian town of Ypres. It caught the Allies flatfooted, killed six thousand, Inured 10.000. But this time, the Allies won't be caught flat-footed. Even before the war, every Londoner had a protective mask. Certainly, a ga asault against the British capital, like the robot assault, would do little to change the tide of war. It would only further harden Allied determination to deal with fst-wnr Germany in such a way to kill for all time Its Insane sire to spread ruin and death and misery over all world. U £^ -|^ , —, . Biwuus UUNES FIVE CENTS JS^TANKSDRIVE INTO LAON,lEIMS ~~ ' Crippled Vets Must Be Given Chance To Work Lions Club Speaker Puts Responsibility On Community The public must assume ll,s share of responsibility in the rehabilitation of war-maimed veterans, Paul Knowles, St. Louts salesman, told members of the Lions Club at their regular weekly meeting yesterday at Hotel Noble. Mr. Knowles, who carries on a iticcessful business despite the fact ihat he Is blind, reminded members of the club that one of the most important postwar problems facing this and other communities will be that of restoring the economic Independence of physically lanclicapped veterans. The Government will do cverv- hlng ixjssible to educate these men n order that they may make the fullest use of their facilities in trades ind professions, the speaker said, but it will be the treatmnl they receive from business men and the nibllc generally that will detcr- mne the degree of their rchabili- ation. "Do not hesitate to give one of •liese veterans a job which he hns icen trained to do," Mr. Knowtes urged, "because it Is likely lie will do it far better than someone not mndicapped because he knows he must If he is to compete with othcr> or employment." Listing some of the "rton'U" to be emembered in the treatment of handicapped veterans, Mr. Knowles mphasized that all those who come n contact with sucli men treat •hem as normal people. "Above all, don't ask a veteran how he lost his irm, leg or his eyesight. Help him o forget he Is handicapped. Don't - solicitous.- Let him help himself much as possible regardless of his condition,"' He illustrated the point that-almost any handicapped person can arn a livelihood by relating tho ase of a former newspaper rc- wrter who lost his eyesight, both rms and both legs. "It looked like hopeless case," Mr. Knowles said. But this man was taught to make it best of his remaining facilities He developed his mind, learned a ozen foreign languages and today •olds a well-paid, and important radio job in New York." Mr. Knowles, who owns a "seeing eye" dog, a massive German police dog named "Taran," answered questions concerning the animal and demonstrated some of its training. Another feature of the program was the showing of "The Battle of Britain." a war film made by the Eighth Service Command in Dallas for the War Manpower Commission. The film was shown by S. W. Littleton of the Mississippi County Health Unit, assisted by J. M. Cleveland of the U. S. Employment Service.

It's harvest time again In Mississippi county with farmers beginning the gathering of Fall crops which make cash registers bulge as money flows through many channels. Tlie county's 477,668 acres of farm land expected to yield valuable products. Already cotton (s being gathered, alfalfa is being cut for about the fourth time this year wih another cutting scheduled' for late In the Fall; truck crops arc being sold and the corn and soybeans will be gathered, beginning within several weeks and continuing into October, with gardens apparently Ihc only land product not paying good dividends this year Despite cotton, the biggest money crop in the county, getting off to t he latest start in local history, the crop is expected to yield more than last year and Mississippi County u 111 retain its title of the largest cotton-producing county in the world. ' Many agriculturists predict thai 40,000 bales more than In 19« w... be gathered this year because of condition of the crop and belief that more land was planted to cotton this year, although figures are no ' available on amount planted. The 1943 • cotton crop totaled approximately 157,000 bales from the 180,530 acres planted, which was below records made in some previous years when the county has averaged more than a bale of cotton to the acre. Reduction In the yield over former bumper crops is expected because of the wet Spring, which made planting unusually late, and the dry weather of the Summer which retarded growth. As farmers gather cotton, the;' also harvest such truck crops as lima beans, now underway. Soybeans, a crop pushing cotton for the Number One position, will be harvested through October with an average crop expected. Although early corn was below average, the late corn crop this year Is expected to be much belter as the recent rain have been ol much benefit. That picking of the cotton crop will be a difficult one, because of labor shortage. Is recognized both by large operators and small farmers who already are picking over their cotton for the first time. Practically all of the 79 gins In the county have ginned a little cotton although picking k not expected to be general until next week and lack of sunshine might delay general picking several days longer. Obtaining labor to harvest the cotton is certain to be an acute problem. Farmers who have gone Into the hill sections to obtain families for picking have returned disappointed after having learned that many adult members of Ihtsc families hav c gone Into defense plants. Cost of erecting the camp at Blythevillc was between $15,000 and $20,000, which was borne' by [ picking. farmers contracting for the labor. 'I1ie government Is paid by the farmer SI 44 for each eight-hour day a prisoner Is used and because prisoners do not pick as rapidly as oilier pickers, It is not known whether the farmer will profit by this tyiie labor. There now are only 147 prisoners here with 600 contracted for, but It is expected that others will arrive soon. Number of prisoners al the several other camps In the county are said lo average about the same figure although numbers were not available here. .
